Thanks to the 100+ people who have completed the survey already!
The responses are already proving useful, so if you haven’t done it yet, I would appreciate you doing so over the next couple of days 🤗
I will also share some of the stats and address some of the common misunderstandings!
The survey is now closed after 239 responses! Thanks to everyone who took part 😊
Some interesting charts I can share
One of the common complaints was that images are cropped to 16x9 in the feed until you click to enlarge them. Well you will now find an option to turn off this behaviour in preferences 🎉
It will only work on posts that have a single image for now (otherwise many posts would be super long), but we might change that soon.
@james done. Thanks for asking good questions!!!!
Me too, I also helped fill in the survey 😇
@james Filled it out. Thanks for asking for our opinion, hope it helps😁
@james done ^^
@james I’m dying to know about misunderstandings based on the questions.
@james Surprised to see tumblr is second. How is that still possible?
@087orion same. I don't have an account anymore, but maybe the remanning community went SFW only and continued to exist. I think they blocked the various ABDL hashtags a long time ago, so would be tricky for new users to grow / find content.
@james @087orion So my Tumblr account was terminafed a month before the big purge and I thought the same thing. Recently my appeal was finally processed and my account was restored and I logged back in expecting something resembling a wasteland. What I really found was a community that was largely ignoring the NSFW ban, because a lot of ABDL content either slips through the filters or passes its human evaluation on terms of being therapeutic and not intentionally pornographic.
@kinesecd @james @087orion the 'purge' (i.e. people deleting their accounts) actually brought a segment of our community out from the shadows, people who previously got very little attention because of their low follower count have flourished. I do miss a lot of the old community, but it's cool to see regular content there, here, and everywhere. We're taking over the web! lol.
@james that's a huge difference!
@james I just got done filling out the survey; you're doing a great job
@james Makes sense abdl.link would be at the top considering the site the poll was posted on :P Seems most people who eventually move over here tend to stay at least in some capacity. Definitely interesting how low Twitter was though, all things considered, as I was also under the impression that it would beat out Tumblr, even if by only a little.
@Tylerchu well the question was to figure out specifically where *ABDL.link* users spend most of their time, not the ABDL community as a whole. While it's not surprising we have some loyal users, ~56% of our users spend more time using other sites which is more concerning when thinking about why users drop off.
The other question was "which social sites do you use for ABDL content?" and Twitter came out with 30% and 60% on Tumblr.
